Most Powerful Star Wars Characters


The Top Ten

1 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

Most powerful force ability is the force choke. The choke is a ability that causes little pain to the throats of victims and appears as if the throat is dancing. The victim will have a little more difficulty breathing but nothing dangerous and the victim can break the grip by prying off the invisible hand placed on their neck. Also gives the victim the opportunity to attack the user as they will waist so much of their energy on this power leaving them drained. Overall, not dangerous and can be broken by getting off the hand.

The force choke involves the user to use all their power to constrict the throat in which will cause he or she to cough and fight for air attempting to break this grip and stop the slight pain. Most of the time the victim's neck will be fine and will break this grip. That is why most sith don't use it in battle as it can be broken and can't even hurt the victim what so ever.

We should take a look at the force choke! It most of the time can do little more than be an annoyance as it casually dosen't have the power to snap a neck. Powerful force users can kill but requires great focus and some victims can kill the user while being strangled and even then sometimes cannot snap a neck. The force choke is just annoying and cannot really kill and doesn't usually have the power to harm the victims.

Lol we all know Vaders the most powerful stated in the book revenge of the sith by Patricia Sidious thinks he will still be FAR more powerful than anyone else

2 Yoda Yoda Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars space opera franchise created by George Lucas, first appearing in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.

For me, Yoda is the god of galaxies, my little green man

This list is for the most powerful, not favorite, Yoda is the most powerful

The most powerful jedi. Faster than he looks if you've played any games. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.
4 Palpatine
5 Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker is a fictional character appearing as the central protagonist of the original film trilogy, and as a supporting character in the sequel trilogy of the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas.

Number 8? Really? George Lucas said himself that Luke is the most Powerful - PeeledBanana

6 Admiral Motti

While Motti can't dish out tremendous amounts of damage he can take it. Can Motti survive the force push, yes and the choke as well. In the choke scene one can see an angry Vader attempt to choke Motti in which results in an struggle with Motti at first taking the choke with no hand up to clutch due to the fact Vader's choke was so weak. However Motti was getting annoyed by it so he put an hand up to his throat to prye off Vader's grip until Tarkin thought it was childish. Vader had failed in many ways with first being making himself look immature, and second being that Motti knew the extent of his abilities, and knew that his throat could withstand Vader's grip. What people forget is that Vader is not an op character but rather an armored old man who has a fetish for choking people with the force. Case closed Motti won

He was in one of the best scenes in one of the greatest films ever. He didn't care about the force and spoke up to Vader anyways before immaturely being cut off by Vader with an powerful force choke as Vader stated "I find your lack of faith disturbing" before Tarkin interfered after witnessing the long struggle between the young man and the cyborg and thinking Vader of being immature. Not only did Motti survive he did so in front of everyone embarrassing Vader who claimed to be god like in power when he was struggling to choke an officer.

Admiral Motti was an intelligent, and physically strong man. He was known for his physique, being very tall and muscular, and was at peak human levels of prowess. Motti was also known for being quite durable as he easily tanked an angry Vader's force choke. Sure, he may not have the force but his intelligence, physical ability with him being strong and durable will ensure that he stays in the fight. Vader choked him which resulted in some throat pain but that's all Vader could do.

He was choked by the weak Vader. Vader was exerting himself and yet Motti was slowly removing the grip from his throat. The guy who portrayed Motti was excellent, but it comes off as someone gargling for a few minutes. What is the point of learning the force when you can't even choke someone.

7 Mace Windu Mace Windu Mace Windu is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, portrayed by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel films.

He's awesome. Funny how he's the only character to have a purple lightsaber. - IronSabbathPriest

He is such a bosss! He created Vaapad, and mastered ALL SEVEN styles of lightsaber combat. Not only is he the bestn lightsaber duelist of all time, he is also an EXTREMELY powerful force user who sould use the force crush, which Yoda couldn't. He beat palpatine/ sidious in a duel and was the second most senior member of the Jedi Council, only after master Yoda. He also lead the 212 jedi in the Battle of Geonosis, and... KILLED JANGO FETT, one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, who is very, very famously known for killing MANY, MANY Jedi. Plus, Obi Wan failed to defeat him. Mace Windu should be higher than Dooku, Luke, Vader and Obi wan. - riki1234

8 Padmé Amidala

She was so beautiful which became a tool in manipulation. She also is arguably superhuman physically able to drop from great heights without no sign of injury or fatigue making her one of the most durable as well as beating anakin in an wrestling match and surviving a bloodlusted Anakin's force choke while pregnant. She also does not have the small stature of Leia as she stands over 6 inches taller than Leia as well as having a larger and more feminine build.

Sure her character may have not been well written but she was no slouch. She basically has Leia's intellectual capabilities while being much taller and built far better for combat. She also was known for her unmatched beauty with the only few coming close being Leia, Mara Jade, and Juno Eclipse.

Padme is very powerful. While Leia is stronger Padme is more durable. I do think that Padme's durability advantage is huge compared to Alexia's advantage and it will take more than blunt force to harm Padme. Also Padme is just much taller and better built being 5'6 compared to Leia's 4'11 stature.

While she isn't quite as beautiful as her daughter she is still an attractive woman who can use her beauty along with her intellect to manipulate nearly everybody! Although Leia is stronger Padme is more durable and extremely hard to harm and is arguably superhuman as she has survived falls, hits from large breasts and force chokes from bloodlusted force users.

If you know well controlled Lightsaber do not have to fear it, but if you do not - screwed - nothing escapes

Grievous is awesome! His four lightsabers make him a powerful enemy. - IronSabbathPriest

She originally served as The Emperor's Hand to Emperor Palpatine during the reign of the Galactic Empire. After the Emperor's death, Mara Jade went on to become a smuggler. Later, she became a Jedi, and eventually married Luke Skywalker. more.

While not matching the crazy raw power of her husband Luke and his family such as his father and sister she was still an extremely powerful being. She still contended with Cadeus and arguably would have killed him had she not been distracted. She also has good durability feats like being force choked by powerful beings, stabbed, and thrown through walls and pillars while always getting back up. I will say that she has more raw power than suit Vader and was easily the better duelist than him. I will argue that she is one of the best duelist of all time. She is also nearly Op in power only being weaker to members of the Skywalker family by blood or yoda or palp.

One of the most powerful force users ever. The red hair beauty is capable of taking in what she can dish, giving her superhuman durability.

Luke's beloved wife is one of the most powerful force weilders ever to live. She was best known for her extreme durability, in which she was able to survive explosions stabs and force chokes.

Very powerful, and extremely durable!

20 Kylo Ren Kylo Ren Kyle Ren is a fictional Sith lord, who is strong with the Force . Kylo Ren commands the First Order with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. His debut was in 2015's Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

Kylo is very underrated and is PRETTY good. However, his abiliteies are no match for at least 38 jedi and 44 sith, and even boba or jangon could take hi down... with help, of course! - riki1234
